Jet Linx Aviation today announced that it began applying the BIOPROTECTUs System to disinfect and protect its fleet of 112 jet aircraft, private base terminals, and facilities throughout the United States.
It said it is the first and only operator in the worldwide aviation industry to utilize the BIOPROTECTUs System by ViaClean Technologies.
They encompass an array of EPA registered and FDA compliant technologies that disinfect and inhibit the growth and spread of problematic bacteria, fungi, algae, mold, and viruses as well as provides long-term antimicrobial protection for 90-days.
“The health, wellbeing, and safety of our clients, flight crews and ground personnel is our utmost priority, and that is why we made the decision to treat all our Jet Linx aircraft and facilities with the BIOPROTECTUs System,” said Jet Linx President and CEO Jamie Walker.
He continued, “We expect to complete the initial application of the BIOPROTECTUs System by March 20th and, thereafter, we plan to reapply the System every 90 days, or sooner if warranted, in order to actively protect and inhibit the growth and spread of harmful germs.”
He added, “Jet Linx is dedicated to advancing safety efforts throughout the private aviation industry, and we are confident that the actions we have taken as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic will safeguard our clients, flight crews and ground personnel.”
Jet Linx will also install BIOPROTECT Hand Purifier dispensers in each of its 18 private base terminals and offer the dispensers inflight on its private jet fleet.
These client-only, base terminal facilities offer a secure setting that is “far more protected and private than any other terminal or FBO in the aviation industry,” the company asserts.
